About Us

We are different! ... Road Warrior Australian Cattle Dog Rescue is more than a rescue. We focus on not only the problem of abandoned Cattle Dogs but also on the root causes.

We are 501c3 approved, 100% volunteer-run and and we all wear many hats! These are our Executive Board members and Directors and their key responsibilities:

Vision - To eliminate the need for shelters by being the leader in Australian Cattle Dog rescue, outreach and advocating for the Eastern and Southern United States and Central and Eastern Canada. (Geographic area noted under Section 2: Location.)

Mission - Road Warrior Australian Cattle Dog Rescue is a fully-volunteer run US organization whose over-arching goal is to support the current Australian Cattle Dog population when faced with re-homing, as well as owners, guardians, shelters and other principled rescues in a responsible and ethical manner to reduce shelter populations, overall population and the spread of transmissible disease. We are focused on three program areas with the focus on Australian Cattle Dogs:

1) re-homing the breed from improper homes and “rescue” from shelters to approved foster homes for adoption placement,

2) healthcare and support outreach programs for all breeds for spay-neuter and vaccines through partnerships with veterinary clinics and,

3) advocating for stricter animal welfare laws and legislation for all breeds/mixed-breed dogs.

We are organized to promote and assist in re-homing Australian Cattle Dogs, responsible dog ownership through education, improved health and healthcare of dogs to control population and the advocacy of animal welfare. Our headquarters are in Havelock, North Carolina and we operate in the US and Canada, focusing on the eastern states in the US and central and eastern provinces of Canada as noted, but not limited to:

US: - Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, New York State, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia
